Coach Tony Bussan:
“We had a very good meet, against some of the top competition in the state, all classes combined. A limited number of 14 squad members competed due to spring break. We had a number of fine performances throughout the meet. Highlights included our medley relay placing 7th and our 4×800 placing 9th. Top ten finishes at this meet represent a fine accomplishment. Senior Max Harfst ran 2 excellent 800’s; a 2:03 leading off the 4×8 and 2:05 anchoring the medley. Max was a fighting the flu and still bettered his previous best 800 time of 2:04 set last year at state. His fellow relay mates on 4×8 also each set new personal bests and our time in that event was better than last year’s best. Garrett Whitmore and Lincoln Lasourd had fine nights as sprinters with very good 200’s on the Medley and fine splits on the 4×4. Casey Porter also gave us a good 400 split on the medley. Freshman J.J. Moore had a very good shot put of 44 feet 3 inches. All of our distance runners set new personal bests in their efforts in the 1600 and 3200. While we are pleased with our strong start in many areas, we have a great deal of work to do and much progress to make as we move toward our outdoor track season following spring break.”
